If you are tired of conventional designs, this kit should get you excited. Requires some advanced skills but, take your time and you will be rewarded with a beautiful rocket. By all means, get one. (Posted on 5/9/13)
As a teenager I loved building Estes rockets. I was in the hobby store and found the isle that had them. I picked up a few but wanted a good one to get back in to the build. I found one good one in this rocket. Took me longer then I thought but it is just what I wanted in a Estes.Qcc Exp Fly"s great. (Posted on 3/19/13)
I am from the old school rocket BP (Before Plastic) I built all of them as a kid..Mercury Redstone (escape tower), Mars Lander, Saturn 1B, Saturn V, I even had the Camroc. I gotta tell you it is nice to see a rocket with wood that you have to really build. Building is the best part for me. This rocket you have to build. I like that... (Posted on 2/3/13)
The QCC Explorer is a complex kit that builds into a great looking rocket. It does require some more advanced building skills to assemble the intake pods due to their complex shape. Building the intakes and then filling and sanding them is easily 90% of time involved in the kit. Seeing the rocket taking shape as the build progresses makes all the time and effort worthwhile!

This is such a great looking rocket. Need to take time in the build as it is a little challenging but one of the better looking rockets around. I flew it with E9-8 a little bit susceptible to weather-cocking but had some dead straight flights that were incredible. Highly recommend!! (Posted on 11/25/12)
What an amazing rocket. We flew it 5 times and it was a different experience every time. This rocket was our first Level 4 and E engine. I highly recommend this rocket and the price is right. Our second flight it climbed straight as an arrow. Make sure your launch site is huge because if it catches the wind it really flies!
